Beast

History

Henry McCoy had a nice, upper-middle class childhood. He proved himself gifted at a young age, enabling him to skip multiple grades. He graduated from high school at the age of 9, went on to college. After entering his graduate programs at thirteen, however, he began to experience profound physical changes - an increase in strength, an elongation of limbs, a change in the size of his hands and feet, general physical distortion. He retreated from the world, stepping away from his academics for a time. He became friends with another powerful mutant who offered him a chance to train his abilities, leading him to become a part of Xavier's Institute and an early member of the group known as the X-men. Along the way, an errant experiment changed Hank's life forever, altering his body so that he was not only bestial in stature but fully in appearance, his body covered with thick blue fur, senses enhanced, claws and fangs now a part of his life.

This transformation lead to a dark time in his life. Consumed by depression and self-hatred, he withdrew from his friends and allies, hiding himself in his work. In time, he accepted his inability to cure himself. He tries to embrace his changed appearance, with mixed results, and, in the meantime, he has returned to his life, working his best to engage the public intellectually on the issues of mutant rights while retaining his work as an adventurer and scientist on behalf of mutant interests.

Personality

On the surface, Hank McCoy is the epitome of an extrovert. Playful, witty, curious and engaging, he likes to show off and takes ample advantage of his difference to get attention. For all of his whimsy, he can also be extremely engaged and deep, taking on problems with bravery and aplomb. He's most at home in a white coat doing scientific work, often losing himself for hours in study. Behind closed doors, he has a darker side, lonely, regretful, prone to brooding. He tries not to let it show, which he knows isn't particularly healthy, but seems preferable to the vulnerability of sharing his pain.
